I am able to play PS1 games on my lim PS2, but why can't I save the games (even though the card is suitable for a normal PS2 console)?

You will need to go out and buy a psONE memory card or in some cases you can format a ps2 memory card to keep playstation one game saves on the card.

They are really cheap on ebay and amazon. Even a generic should be fine.

Comment if you need any help or have any more questions.

PS2 memory card corrupted "message" Does anyone know if the card can be fixed and if I can get all my date back. Thank You, Pierre

You can format your card, but you cannot get your data back unfortunately. Start the PS2 with no disc in and enter the memory card utility, try manualing deleting the corrupted data. If that does not work, you have a couple of options. I will give you two. Invest in a new memory card, or look into purchasing an AR Max bundle with, one that comes with a memory editor. This bundle has personally helped me as it completely formats your memory cards, and it also allows easy transfer of game saves,

While you may not being able to save your data, investing in an AR Max bundle (they shouldn't be too expensive nowadays) will allow you to download game saves from websites like which will let you bypass playing from the start again.

Good luck.

Try copying save data from memory card 1 to memory card 2. Then start a new game but don't save,. turn off console then back on and load the data that you have copied, This should work

PS2 slim line, cant load saved games

it's either your ps2 or your memorycard.. my suggestion is to buy another memory card, and if the problem reveals unsolved by doing that, you shold call the manufacturer about the problem, because then it is the console itself which is the problem..
